  • SISTERS PRESENTATION
Alhamdulilah, we had three guest speakers today.  Sisters Tamara, Maryan and Sofia.
They presented Surah Yusuf and what they have learned in their studies.
To read their summary click here




They shared the following brief description of their school Al Huda International.


Al Huda International, a place where the Qu’ran and Sunnah are taught, from the youth to the elderly. A place where women and their children can experience solace.


Al Huda started by a Sister who had a vision, “Qu’ran for all in every heart, in every hand.” This vision turned into a non-profit, non-sectarian, non-political organization that is currently working to promote authentic Islamic knowledge.


Al Huda Institute Canada began its educational program in 2001, and is now providing structured courses for people from all walks of life, ranging from courses online to workshops and a variety of publications and multi-media downloads.


The main objective of the Al Huda Institute is to present a true understanding of the Divine Revelation – the Qur’an and Sunnah. The courses are designed to enable students to develop an intimate relationship with The Creator; find inner peace, develop good character, demonstrate effective interpersonal relations and become beneficial members of society working to better serve humanity.


For more information on courses and services available at Al Huda you can visit their website at, www.alhudainstitute.ca


  • VIDEO
Instead of the video, we ended the Halaqa and then Sister Sofia led a craft session with all
the children.  She incorporated Islamic teachings while having the children make gifts for
their moms.
  • CLOSING DUA
For the expiation of sins, said at the conclusion of a sitting or gathering. To listen to this dua click here


196 - "How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You. I bear witness
that None has the right to be worshipped except You. I seek Your
forgiveness and turn to You in repentance."


سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك


Subhânaka l-lâhumma wa bi-hamdika. Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illâ
anta, astaghfiruka wa atûbu ilayka.




If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu
wa ta’ala.  If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
